Holiday Season

Am I the only one having a hard time believing that Thanksgiving is NEXT week?!?!?!?!? YES, that is NEXT week!!!!! I just can not believe its NEXT week! I also can not believe that I am going to be cooking my very first Thanksgiving dinner! Lord, have mercy on me! (And thanks Mom! :P) Lucky for me, my Mom will be buying all of the food and getting everything ready at her house. I will just have to cook it, because she will have a minor little problem in her way (SURGERY on her knee the day before!). Wish me luck there.

I am trying to get excited about the impending holidays, but this year just feels different. Not sure why? Maybe once we get the house decorated and Devin starts to get excited about it (I am sure he will understand things better this year) it will be more fun! Once the carols are flowing and the house is glowing we will be cheery.....I hope! :)

Here is a picture of Devin from last year:

Actually, that already is getting me excited to decorate!!!!

Wait, Thanksgiving is next week!?

LOL, it really does sneak up on you. You'll do great with the cooking. Just a quick tip though. Buy a jar of Turkey gravy and tuck it in the back of your cupboard just in case.

I'm not feeling the greatest about the Holidays this year either. Maybe it's b/c we're BROKE, well, we're broke every year, but this year is worse! AND the constant running around making sure we see EVERYONE under God's green earth!!! Anyways, good luck with your cooking, i'm sure you'll do great!

I think I had the same rxn this morning when I looked at the calendar. Wait, I thought Thanksgiving was in like a month!!!

I agree, 2008 was one of the fastest years ever, at least it seems that way. I'm not too excited about Thanksgiving but I am starting to look forward to Christmas. It's the first Christmas in our own house so I'm all stoked to put lights up LOL.

Another here does not believe the holidays are so close! GL with your cooking, and tell you mom GL with her surgery!
I will also be cooking this year, not everything since other family will be bringing things but what I'm worried about is having it at OUR house! It makes me want to start cleaning, NOW! LOL
I'm sure we will both be fine, make sure to take lots of pictures!

OMG i'm sooo excited too!! I've been telling myself I HAVE to get to feeling better. It's my FAV time of year :). Love the pic, makes me want to decorate too.

I am not there either. I can not believe Thanksgiving is next week. You think I would more excited because Justin and Tyler are happy about it. But I am not. Good luck with cooking dinner.
